PS3 Outsells 360 Every Year except '06 & '08

Forums - Gaming Discussion - PS3 Outsells 360 Every Year except '06 & '08

*looks at Nintendo and MS 7th gen market share then compares to 6th gen*
Yeah Sony is the only loser this gen. This is FACT, unless Sony somehow can earn back their market share in the next 10 months, they lost this gen regardless of whether they outsell the X360 by a margin or not.

Well, this thread really blew up.



Carl is a Piplup hater and deserves to be punished eternally.

also in 2011 the xbox 360 sold more than ps3...officil shipment data of course

wii outsold both of them for 4 years anyway, so the author of this post wouldnt use words like worldwide system leader talinkg about ps3

and ps3 isnt the leader in any of big territories like na,eu or jp

This is a very unfair way of looking at it. After last gen, MS and Nintendo could only go up because GC and Xbox utterly failed against the dominating PS2. Can't expect them to continue dominating forever.

sold =/= shipped. He is talking about sales to consumers.

Yes, he is wrong to call PS3 a worldwide leader those years. PS3 was a leader in 2011 and 2012 though and will likely lead 2013 as well (home consoles).

It's actually the correct way to look at it, although I don't think you can call Sony, at least the play station brand a loser this generation.  but in terms of profibilty and just a increase in market share overall Sony just wasn't able to compete with ms and Nintendo this generation. Sales are important and Sony has done a great job of getting on top in sales, but sometimes where you sell is more important and while this a diverse community the USA is still the single most important market and while it may upset many to hear this Japan is almost irrelevant at this point given its economic power.  Keep in mind Sony has been damaged so much this generation, the actual existence of Sony as a company is in question in the next 10 years.

It can be argued that it's also unfair to add Japan to the equation since MS no longer competes there. Remove Japan, remove X360 one year lead and you have apples to apples. If you wanna go further then also remove RROD and Blu-Ray only PS3s...

Nintendo proved just a few things for the now 5 gen.'s they've been in the games industry, and that's that you have to go backwards before you can go forward. and you've got to start ahead to get ahead.

example ninity home systems ww:

NES 60m won the 3rd gen.

SNES 50m won the 4th gen.

GC 21m

Wii 100m

WiiU  N/A who knows, Ninty may go 2 for 2 lol

the thing i don't understand is how Sony simply contradicts this. Sony went forward to go backwards

example:

PS1 105m

PS2 more then 155m

PS3 72m

srry i forgot what my point was lol. oh yea. Nintendo won from behind, while Sonywas lossing ahead. makes no sense. or does it.

The Wii is an anomaly. This has been talked about before.

The PS2 actually earned it's market share from rivals. The Wii simply created a new market that for all intents and purposes wasn't there before it. Problem is  that blue ocean market no longer belongs to Nintendo so they gotta move on(Wii U).



The PS3 is one amazing machine and the GLOBE agrees judging by its continuous sails! No doubt about it.



According to a new study; YouTube, Xbox.com, NeoGaf, N4G, VGChartz, IGN, GameSpot, GameStop, Facebook, Twitter, Amazon, All of Europe, FAMITSU, Japan, the rest of Asia and The whole of the Middle East among countless others are experiencing a Tsunami of people in love with Sony's gamings offerings.
